MMCA explains itself like this:
We have no headquarters, which is good for the heating/cooling bill. We have no boss, no timekeeper, and no employee handbook. Then again, we have no fixed
income. What we do have is group purchasing power in a world market. We are diverse. You will find not only full-time professional artists among us, but an arts gallery owner, a stay-at-home-mom, several savvy business women and more. Most of them would not know any of the others if they met in passing because most have never met face-to-face. Yet, many of the members talk daily about issues affecting their business and given that the art world relies on disposable income; there is a lot to discuss these days. A passion for adventure, exploration and art unifies the artists involved in the MMCA Marketplace, a virtual store that went up as the Dow was crashing down. MMCA Marketplace is a retail fine arts and craft shop. Its member artists make art cards, mixed media collages, floor cloths, jewelry, sculpture, paintings on paper and canvas, photographs and much more.
They are (regularly) showing some excellent work on their site – click on over and enjoy!
thought for the day: A good relationship isn't always crystals and rainbows. It's a birth process, often painful, often messy…A "spiritual relationship" isn't necessarily one in which two people [or one person in relationship to her art] are smiling all the time….Real [relationship] work can only occur in the presence of rigorous honesty. Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles
